Who's the Greater Threat to Society?

Categories: CrimeOpinion

March 5, 2020

This judge is an example of why America's judicial system is such a farce.

18-year-old Penelope Soto was charged with possession of Xanax.  Having no criminal record, her bail was originally set at $5,000.00.  Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Jorge Rodriguez-Chomat closed the hearing with a friendly "bye-bye".  Soto, smiling, responded with "Adios," and happily walked away.

Judge Rodriguez-Chomat decided, for some reason, Soto's response was justification to call her back and double her bail to $10,000.00.

Soto's jaw dropped.  "Are you serious?"

"I am serious.  Adios!"  The judge's friendly demeanor suddenly turned to a rude tone.

As Soto walked away in disbelief, she flipped Rodriguez-Chomat "the bird".

Rodriguez-Chomat called her back again, charged Soto with contempt, and imposed a 30-day jail sentence.

America has the highest incarceration rates in the world, and among the highest execution rates in the world.  Yet, we also have among the highest crime rates in the world, including murders with firearms, murders committed by youths, car thefts, frauds, embezzlements, drug offences, property crime victims, and total crimes, according to data gathered by

Between Penelope Soto and Jorge Rodriguez-Chomat, who is the biggest threat to society in America?

I would argue that Rodriguez-Chomat is a much bigger threat, and that it's Rodriguez-Chomat who should spend 30 days, if not longer, behind bars.

What did Soto do wrong?  (Don't say possession of drugs.  She hasn't been tried yet, let alone convicted.)  She smiled and pleasantly said goodbye in a foreign language.  When her bail was doubled as a result, she expressed her displeasure in a commonly accepted, non-violent, non-verbal manner.  Soto was more than justified.

What did Rodriguez-Chomat do wrong?  He allowed his personal feeling and pride to interfere with his professional decisions, not once, but twice.  He allowed a smile and a foreign language to anger him, prompting him to unjustly raise bail on a defendant that did/does not appear to pose a threat to society.  He then, without justification, took the defendant's liberty from her.  So much for freedom in America!

What's surprising to me is that this video made the news.  This kind of injustice happens every day all across the country, and it's almost always ignored.  People are routinely jailed in America for far less.  I've been there, and I've seen it happen to others countless times.  Judges seem to have this pompous impression that the rabble is obligated to bow down to them.  Should we show them respect?  Only if they deserve it.  And increasingly, they don't, as Rodriguez-Chomat has shown.

Las Vegas Township, Department 11, Justice of the Peace Eric A. Goodman

Sometimes, judges make bad decisions.  Sometimes, they're unreasonable.  Sometimes, they're jerks.  Sometimes, they take out their personal problems on defendants.  Sometimes, they're criminals.  But defendants are helpless.  No one listens, no one cares.  Very few defendants can afford attorneys, and they couldn't find an attorney willing to go up against a judge anyway.  The bottom line is that judges are the biggest obstacle to freedom in America, followed closely behind police and politicians.  Rodriguez-Chomat is now my poster boy for bad apples sitting on the bench.

So now we have one more non-violent person in an American jail who should not be there.  And we have one more "Adam Henry" judge who remains on the bench, who doesn't deserve the respect he commands, and who deserves much worse than one middle finger from a teenage girl.  So here Rodriguez-Chomat - this is for you, and all the American judges like you (including Las Vegas Township, Department 11, Justice of the Peace Eric A. Goodman)!
